I've been trying to build up an inventory, so I can hit a show, but I build slow. I've been lucky so far that as I finish one, somebody online offers to buy it. I think I've finally hit a point ... and I'll see shortly ... that I can build up a small inventory. I have two builds coming out of the wood shed very soon, and pics/videos shortly after that. If I have no offers, that'll be two, for the festival or craft show inventory.
My inventory has built up over the past three years or so of building. I've been going a lot slower as of late, but when I start building it goes fairly quickly
In July I participated as a vendor for the local APL fundraiser, and sold 4 items of the 7 I had. I was pleased. In October will do another fundraiser the APL is having so looking forward to taking the remaining 3 items and the last 2 builds I finished; Spirit of '76 II 2 string and the 3 string baritone. I am not hardcore into doing venues, but like doing them when I have enough to sell.
I haven't tried to sell any really, until now. I did have someone request a canjo as a christmas gift last year though.
Maybe now I have a little more incentive.
